Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
A new article on the blog website for the Massachusetts workers’ compensation firm of Kantrovitz & Associates, P.C., takes a close look at different types of employer fraud that can potentially hinder a worker’s ability to secure the benefits they need and deserve after suffering a work-related injury or illness.
“The article lists more than a dozen specific indicators that an employer may be neglecting or simply ignoring their obligation to maintain workers’ comp insurance,” said Steven H. Kantrovitz, an experienced Massachusetts workers’ compensation attorney who launched the blog in 2011.
“These are things that the average worker is likely not to recognize as a reason to be concerned,” Kantrovitz said. “But, unfortunately, they happen far too often.”
The article is an example of the continually updated news and information that can be found at the Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Blog for workers who have been injured on the job or suffered an occupational illness, according to Kantrovitz.
Topics covered on the site include “Dangers in the Workplace,” “Legal Concerns & Advocacy,” “Your Health & Recovery” and “Workers’ Compensation A-Z.”
“We’ve collected this information in the hope that it will assist workers and employers before a workers’ compensation dispute arises,” said Kantrovitz, whose firm features a Boston office and assists workers throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire. “We believe that anyone who is a part of the work force can benefit from it.”
However, Kantrovitz added, the many different aspects of workers’ compensation laws, regulations and procedures are too broad and complicated to be thoroughly conveyed on a website. Additionally, every case presents unique facts and circumstances.
“If a worker has a dispute involving a workers’ compensation claim, we urge them to get experienced legal assistance as soon as possible that will help them to resolve their specific situation,” he said.
